84E

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4227/84E.jpg

1/60th at F2.8, ISO 1600 (55mm).

Sometimes I feel like the internet and its mass of photos and daily sharing has led people, me included, to want to capture these attention grabbing, magical, contrasty, colorful scenes where lots of things seems to be happening.  Those are the photos that get noticed the most, for obvious reasons.

Compare this to the last photo.  I personally like this one better.

Let's bring back the understated scene.

Five Women, Subway

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4211/five_women.jpg

1/200th at F2.8, ISO 1600 (28mm).

New York is a city of women. To be more exact, it is a city of professional and fashionable working women.  In fact, according to the 2010 census, there are over 410,000 more women in the city than men.

Old High Line

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4207/high_line.jpg

1/250th at F16, ISO 400 (35mm).

Got a chance to check out the final untouched section of the High Line yesterday, slated for construction in the next three months.  So expect some more of these photos mixed in over the next few weeks.

It's an interesting feeling photographing something that you know will disappear in the coming months.

This is one of those images that's much better viewed large.

Broken Dreams

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4199/broken_dreams.jpg

 1/25th at F5, ISO 1600 (28mm).

Those are lottery tickets stuck in a subway vent.

The city is a place of great fortune for some, but more often of broken dreams.

Crete in Colour

http://www.jamesmaherphotography.com/images/0000/4193/crete_in_colour.jpg

1/500th at F8, ISO 800 (28mm).

There are many ways to cope with the stress of the crowded nature and piled garbage in the city.

I prefer to think of the garbage and the sludge-water flowing into the gutters as the mountaintops and streams of the 21st century.  Frightening but beautiful, if you are able to look at it in those terms.

Maybe I'll become the Ansel Adams of garbage photography.
